This thread just had to be made :D

This race is so promising. If we get half the action there was in Oman it'll prob be one of the best editions lol

I'll jump on Evans early.

He needs to show some good early season form after last years health problems and the TOO is giving him some kms to loosen the racing cobwebs.

I think he'll be fit and aggressive in T-A.

Don't know, I want to vote Alberto but I am not sure. Anything can happen. Actually, I expect Froome to put 30" into Alberto in the tt :eek:
Last year's TT result:
1 CANCELLARA, Fabian (RADIOSHACK-NISSAN) 10:36
2 BENNATI, Daniele (RADIOSHACK-NISSAN) + 0:12
3 MEYER Cameron (GREENEDGE) + 0:16
4 TUFT, Svein (GREENEDGE)
5 BOARO Manuele (SAXO BANK)
6 ROULSTON, Hayden (RADIOSHACK-NISSAN) + 0:17
7 STANNARD, Ian (SKY PROCYCLING) + 0:18
8 VELITS, Peter (OMEGA PHARMA-QUICKSTEP) + 0:20
9 NIBALI, Vincenzo (LIQUIGAS-CANNONDALE)
10 PINOTTI, Marco (BMC RACING) + 0:21

Contador will lose around 15s imo.

No way! I'm expecting very small gaps between the top GC guys in the TT.

I voted for Contador, although I'm sure it's gonna be close between him and Froome.

Honestly I don't care much who's gonna win. It's gonna be amazing anyway.

I think Nibs and Alberto will not lose much time to each other, a few seconds, but they will lose about 20 seconds to Froome. So they have to attack together :cool:

Well, Froome must be on Cancellara's level to put 20 second into Contador and Nibbles. I don't think he is there yet. But it wouldn't be the first time he surprises me :eek:

The last six weeks have been pretty constantly hard. This is the start of a race phase now and then we go to Tenerife after this. Catalunya is when we want to start doing something, followed by Trentino and Liege-Bastogne-Liege
